RE: Hart Hickox #24077109 photo request
Okay. I understand as I do the same thing. I take photos of entire cemeteries as well. Yes, please double check. They should be by their parents.

Schaefffer duplicate deleted
Hi.. Thanks for catching that duplicate.. I thought I had searched carefully before I created the memorial, but missed the listing somehow.
Nice job on Elwina's memorial too. Sorry to read both her grave and sister's grave are unmarked.
That is one HUGE cemetery!

Elwina Schubert
Thank you for adding the bio on Elwina... so prompt, too.
I forgot to edit her birthdate, which Ziegels Church Burial records also had with her entry.
So I requested one more edit for her it will be known.
Thank you very much for ALL your work here,
Pat D.

RE: Martha Graham photo request
Thank you again in advance for going to see if there is a stone. And for the obituary too. If she's buried next to her second husband, I'm thinking there will probably be a stone as he has one (Samuel Adams Graham - he died in 1904 and there is a photo of it already on find a grave).

Hi BjJ.
I appreciate the added info that you provided. That's great!! I'm not a family member. I was trying to connect family of those members of Torpedo Squadron 8 Midway Island Detachment who were killed in the early stages of the battle of Midway on 4 June 1942. Mary Rosina, d. of Joseph Lawrence and Gertrude Fromme Burger, married Howard William Pitt Sr. My research connected their son Howard Jr to that squadron where he was a turret gunner on the new TBF-1 torpedo planes that was supposed to be flying from USS Hornet on that day.
Why they didn't fly from Hornet, but instead flew from Midway Island, is an interesting story for another day.
Thanks for helping to fill in more of William Jr's ancestry.

Best regards,
Gerry (G47)

Moses & Jeff Pilcher
Linking is so important and helpful to everyone, and appreciate the quick updates. This was definitely the correct family. Many thanks :)

Moses Pilcher
When you updated Moses (21759571) and linked a son "Jeff" to him ... I'm thinking you may have helped me find "Jeptha" who was born the same time as Jeff and who was more than likely widowed. Most all the Pilcher men were carpenters. Anyhow, thank you for the lead and update. :)

RE: Sarah Mock Parr 22401648
According to the data I have, Sarah was married twice.

She was born as Sarah Margaret Mock, May 24, 1835 in Virginia to John Alexander and Margaret (Widener) Mock [my 4th great grandparents].

She first married to Joseph Stretcher on October 14, 1852 and they had at least 6 children.

Joseph died October 12, 1866. Sarah later then married Isaac B. Parr on May 19, 1883.

Sarah died April 17, 1887.

Stella Bitot Memorial # 55384849
This is my Aunt and the information in this article is incorrect. Her parents names are Tony Bitot (Anthony Bitautas) and Anna Janculis Betot they are both from Lithuanian. They were living in Bulpit,Ill at the time. After her death the parents moved to Detroit, Mi where they both passed away and are buried. There was no Anthony Jr. in the family. Her siblings were, Nellie, John, Stanley, Bowie, Anna in that order. There are still 2 living Aunts and 2 Uncles as of 2015.
